Abstract

BVA Company is one of a series of some cases and country notes on entrepreneurship in various parts of Eastern and Central Europe. The whole series was planned, financed and coordinated by the European Foundation for Entrepreneurship Research (EFER). Each of the cases, and indeed the country notes, was written by a local East/Central European researcher working in collaboration with an EFER team. BVA Company is a two-year-old Moscow based company which has diversified from specialized computer software into brokerage, small auto parts, and publishing. The question is whether this is a sound basis for survival in the short term and enterprise building in the longer term, given the turbulent political and economic climate of Russia in late 1990. An accompanying note on 'Perestroika: The Context for Entrepreneurship in the USSR' is available with the case. The entrepreneur in the case, Bucov, must now decide whether to continue the process of probing various market opportunities, or whether to settle on a clear direction for future development. His vision is to shift from being a mere middleman for brokered services to a 'factory for ideas' in the form of a Technology and Science Park.
